Award-winning students

Hazel, from the Savio Salesian College Chaplaincy team, is justly proud of the dedicated students from the school's Bosco Group.

 

It never ceases to amaze me what our students can do.

 

During the lunch time at Savio Salesian College, our Bosco Group gathers to discuss what they will do next. We have forty minutes only, and the meetings take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

 

"Next?"you might ask in some astonishment. "Surely, it's lunchtime? An interim period when the students interrupt their studies to refuel for the afternoon session?" ... and, of course, you are right ... except for these students.

 

The group grab their lunches and hasten to the Bosco Room: most of them are unwilling to waste this precious time. They come together as a group of friends. Outside of this room, they are from Years 7 -10, but their common goal unites them.

Looking back at Flame 2017

Flame2017Page 500

 

In the Summer issue of Don Bosco Today, the UK's Salesian Bulletin, we look back at the amazing Flame 2017 gathering of young Catholics. Our Province is a major supporter of Flame, and the hundreds of young people from Salesian schools and projects attended with their teachers, chaplains, youth leaders, Salesian Sisters and SDBs. 

 

A Catholic youth gathering and a Salesian cardinal both trending on Twitter on the same day. Who’d have thought? Well, to those of us at the SSE Arena at Wembley on Saturday 11th March for Flame 2017, it wasn’t much of a surprise.
